How to Measure Wattage of Power Amplifier

Yesterday, We received a question from a customer, “ How to know the real wattage of your FP10000Q?” For your information, our FP10000Q is a 4x1350W at 8ohms, 4x2100W at 4ohms, 4x2500W at 2ohms 4 channel class TD power amplifier. So, today we are going to show you the real power of our FP10000Q.

Firstly, we have an oscilloscope, multi-meter and a FP10000Q.

Secondly, We drive the one channel of power amplifier with pure sine wave from the oscilloscope. Load the amp with 8 ohms or 4 ohms high power resistor. As you can see from the video, CH1 is on the biggest volume, and the signal is stable.

Finally, Set the multi-meter to AC, measure the output of the amp.

In the first part of the video, we load the amp with 8ohms, measured voltage is 108 VAC , then the RMS power @ 8ohms is 1458 Watts

In the second part of the vide, we load the amp with 4ohms, measured voltage is 105 VAC, then the RMS power @ 4ohms is 2756 Watts.

RMS Power = (V*V) / R_Load

= (108*108) / 8

= 1458

In conclusion, our specification of FP10000Q 4CH power amplifier is true. All amps adapted 100% pure copper heatsink, original Neutrik connectors, original ONSMEI transistors, and 3300uf&2200uf capacitors, also it is stable on 2ohms load. Thanks to these good materials and the professional technology, our professional power amplifier can provide high power wattage for sound system.
